At the upcoming annual conference of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago, USA, Siemens will introduce a new angiography system optimized for a broad clinical utilization. Artis one is designed for routine interventions, which represent the majority of angiographic procedures. Energy consumption with the new system is up to 20 percent lower than with Artis zee floor.
The new universal angiography system Artis one comes with a new on-screen menu which allows the physician to navigate directly using the heads-up display. All information about the procedure is thus kept right in front of the operator’s eyes. The comfortable 30 inch display size delivers images up to 90 percent larger than conventional 19 inch monitors.
Thousands of angiographic procedures are performed each day worldwide. On the one hand, these include treatment of highly complex cases requiring a high degree of tailoring of the angiography lab's configuration. On the other hand, there are many routine interventions, which represent the clear majority of cases. These include, for example, revascularizations of peripheral arterial or venous occlusions, functional tests of dialysis shunts (surgical vascular connections between arteries and veins) in patients with kidney failure or of implanted ports in tumor patients. Diagnostic angiographies of narrowed coronary arteries (coronary stenosis) and their treatment or pacemaker implantations are also established routine procedures. Siemens Healthcare developed Artis one to support all of these interventions.Extremely flexible with low space requirement of just 25 square meters
Buttons on the table side console are tactile so that they can be easily operated even under the sterile covering. The on-screen menu allows the physician to navigate directly using the heads-up display. All information about the procedure is thus kept right in front of the operator's eyes. The comfortable 30 inch display size delivers images up to 90 percent larger than conventional 19 inch monitors.Premium applications, powerful x-ray tube
By using 20 percent less energy than Artis zee floor, Artis one also helps reducing operational costs. This is mainly achieved through the use of components manufactured by Siemens for the field of industry automation.
According to the clinical application, Artis one is available in different configurations tailored to fit a broad range of clinical requirements.

A newly developed laser technology has enabled physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (jointly run by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics) to generate attosecond bursts of high-energy photons of unprecedented intensity. This has made it possible to observe the interaction of multiple photons in a single such pulse with electrons in the inner orbital shell of an atom.
In order to observe the ultrafast electron motion in the inner shells of atoms with short light pulses, the pulses must not only be ultrashort, but very...
A group of researchers led by Andrea Cavalleri at the Max Planck Institute for Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg has demonstrated a new method enabling precise measurements of the interatomic forces that hold crystalline solids together. The paper Probing the Interatomic Potential of Solids by Strong-Field Nonlinear Phononics, published online in Nature, explains how a terahertz-frequency laser pulse can drive very large deformations of the crystal.
By measuring the highly unusual atomic trajectories under extreme electromagnetic transients, the MPSD group could reconstruct how rigid the atomic bonds are...

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
